At about 8:30 this morning this was the image of our “Snowmageddon” or as Jon Stewart called it “Snowtorious B.I.G.”

Whooptido. I will say that it is coming down harder now and it looks like it may be starting to stick on certain leaves and cars. I just get so irritated because the weather people always freak out and make it seem like it might REALLY snow this time. I guess after living in Alabama now for about 13 years, I have become sort of cynical about the possibility of snow. Usually, they are very accurate during tornado season (which is pretty much November through May) but when it comes to snow, it’s like they are kids that are just desperate for the fun stuff to come down.

Anyway, I am very glad that is Friday. We got 5th place in Trivia again last night! I think that’s fine because we get a point and I also think it’s pretty impressive considering all of the cheating that goes on during the night by other teams. I really hope that the weather doesn’t get too bad because that would mean Jordan couldn’t come down here. Hopefully, everything will work out. It should be a great weekend.

As you know, I gained weight last week. I’m really hoping that I do NOT gain weight tomorrow...that would crush me. I did pretty well this week. I exercised extra and only went a little over in points one day (which I felt bad about). I know this is ridiculous but I would especially HATE to gain weight on Valentine’s weekend. I mean what a TERRIBLE weekend to feel fat. Even when I had a “romantic” Valentine, it’s never been a holiday that means that much to me. I kind of feel like you should express your love for people EVERY day. I mean, I know that’s easier said than done and I LOVE that Jordan and I celebrate but sometimes Valentine’s Day seems a bit...contrived. I’m not usually the bitter single person that complains about the holiday because I’m perfectly fine with people celebrating it. I think I’m rambling on about this because maybe...I do wish I could celebrate it with someone but honestly, I’m used to disappointing Valentine’s Days at this point. I didn’t intend for that last sentence to sound so emo because I’m really OK. LOL. Maybe I should join the “Screw Valentine’s Day and everything it stands for” bandwagon...I just think that’s a little cliché for a single 20 something don’t you? The only disappointing love is the love that you can’t have. There are people in love that can’t work up the courage to tell the other person and there are people that have worked up the courage but the love is unrequited. There are people who are married who are in love with someone else and there are people who are in love with someone from another culture or race whose family would disown them if they followed through. There are people we have loved that have died and there are people we have loved who have moved away. So, I guess when you are single on Valentine’s Day, you aren’t upset because OTHER people ARE in love, you are upset about the LACK of love that you are getting from the person you really want it from...whether you know them, can’t have them, don’t know them yet...or whatever. I hope that if you ARE celebrating that you have a WONDERFUL weekend...if you aren’t celebrating and you plan on eating multiple Reese Cup Hearts instead...have fun with that too!

I get plenty of love from my family and friends and I’m very excited about seeing everyone this weekend!

Also, I want to give Nichole a shout out (since she never gets on Facebook)-she made me 3 CD’s of music I don’t know that she thought I would like and I think she is right on track because so far...all of it is AWESOME! Also, I’m very proud of her because she is embarking on the Grad School Finding Journey and things are going well for her so far!

Have a great weekend y’all!

“God, I feel like hell tonight
Tears of rage I cannot lie
I'd be the last to help you understand
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Nothing's true and nothing's right
So let me be alone tonight
Cause you can't change the way I am
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me
But please don't leave

I have a face I cannot show
I make the rules up as I go
Just try and love me if you can
Are you strong enough to be my man?

When I've shown you that I just don't care
When I'm throwing punches in the air
When I'm broken down and I can't stand
Would you be MAN ENOUGH to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me
But please don't leave” Strong Enough-Sheryl Crow

Here's a picture of the snow now. It's not a GREAT picture but it is getting a bit more "snow-ish" out there.
